Road works on major highways suspended to avoid congestion during Raya period, says Fadillah

DENGKIL: All road maintenance work that causes road closures on major highways will be temporarily stopped from April 29 to May 9, says Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof.

The Works Minister said this was to prevent road congestion but said that emergency road works on major highways will be carried out if needed.

“Highway concessionaires have also been ordered to increase patrols to provide ample support in case unwanted incidents occur.

“Emergency response teams involving the Health Ministry, Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), Road Transport Department (JPJ), Fire and Rescue Department and the Malaysian Civil Defence Department (JPAM) will also be stationed at known high-risk locations,” he said when launching the road safety campaign for the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations, on Tuesday (April 26).

Fadillah also advised highway users to call the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) Traffic Monitoring Centre (TMC) at 1800-88-7752 for the latest highway traffic updates.

“Highway users are also advised to refer to the Travel Time Advisory’s (TTA) issued by the LLM and highway concessionaires to ensure smooth travels,” he said.
